Tucson, AZ: October 5, 2019 – January 5, 2020
The exhibition will draw on the expertise of the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum to present the interpretive context for this exhibition. Artists are encouraged to share their story of something relevant to the theme which speaks to personal experience of the natural world in their own backyard. In their artist statement, each artist must identify danger to the flora or fauna represented and recommend a call to action that can be taken to help save the species.
With this exhibition, we are hoping YOU will help people to get closer to nature. How can you communicate the wonders of the flora, fauna, and habitat relating to your part of the natural world? Help us inspire others to become better stewards of the environment through your unique artistic interpretation of your own backyard.
Deadline: January 31, 2019
